Ceramide analysis

Ceramides belong to a large class of bioactive sphingolipids consisting of a long chain sphingosine base and a fatty acid. They are found in both cells and tissues and a plethora of research studies have demonstrated that they are involved in the formation of cell’s membranes, contributing to their structural stability, as well as in various biological processes, such as signal transduction, stress response and apoptosis.

Acylcarnitine analysis

Acylcarnitines are an acetylated form of L-carnitine naturally produced by the human body or obtained through diet. These esters are considered essential for the catabolism of fatty acids and for the maintenance of energy homeostasis in the human body. Acylcarnitines have many important functions including the control of several mitochondrial enzymes activity.

Fatty acids analysis

Fatty acids are building blocks of lipids and have many important functions in the body, including energy storage, membrane composition and influence of cell and tissue metabolism, as well as the responsiveness to hormonal and other signals.

Holistic lipidomics analysis

Lipidomics describes the various lipid species present in an organism or sample. Lipidomics involves systems-level identification of pathways and networks, interactions with other biomolecules (e.g proteins) and other moieties in vivo.

Holistic metabolomics analysis

Metabolomics aims at the analysis of the whole small molecule (metabolite) complement of a sample in order to relate metabolite levels with certain characteristics or properties of the sample.

and numerous other fit for purpose analyses: amines, saccharides, nucleosides. Please enquire for a list.


Blood is a rich biological sample routinely collected in clinical laboratories for various cases and is widely used for matabolomics-based analyses. Blood metabolic profile provide a holistic “snapshot” of all transformations occurring in a living organism, as it’s an immediate reflection of both exposome and internal perturbations. 

Together with urine blood serum and plasma are the most commonly used matrices in metabolomics-based studies.

Why measure in urine?
